Shore Acres, North Bend, Oregon
Saturday afternoon we serendipitously happened upon a beautiful garden at a small state park in North Bend, Oregon. In 1906 Louie Simpson built a house for his wife Cassie along the Pacific Ocean. The house burned down, but his incredible gardens remain….with the help of volunteers of the Friends of Shore Acres. We spent most of our time in the American Rose Society section, but this plant caught my eye, and there was not a name tag for it. These are hard purple berries. Purple.
